New Tortricoidea (Lepidoptera) from Southeast Asia in the British Museum (Natural History)
The following stray descriptions and records refer to species from New Guinea, Kei Island, Sumatra and Java. The material is chiefly in the collection of the British Museum (Natural History), London (BM) and also in the Leiden Museum (LM). Four genera and 11 species are discribed on the following pages. My thanks are due to Mr. Ch. Hoorn, of this museum, for his able printing of the photographs. Tortricidae: Tortricinae: Archipini Adoxophyes croesus spec. nov (pl. 1 figs. 1-4) ♂ 19-21 mm.
